A Cure For Coach Leo

14 year old, Assistant Coach Leo Banuelos is part of our Jackson’s MMA family. This young man has warmed our hearts with his talent, his teaching, his laughter, and his inspiring character.  His dedication speaks volumes about what the sport of MMA is, and he really is a prime example of our values and heart at Jackson’s MMA. Training jiu-jitsu, boxing, and MMA since 2016, he is always the first to support his fellow team mates and students. Leo is a straight A Freshman at DHP High School, but he is also a young leader in this industry and our community.

A month ago Leo was diagnosed with APL leukemia, a cancer of the white blood cells. Leo was staying at the Ronald McDonald house in Denver, but has recently moved home.

He is undergoing Chemo therapy everyday, and is in the first real fight of his life.
